Fiber Optic Microswitch
The MR386 series Fiber Optic Microswitch is the world’s first fiber optic microswitch.
The MR386 series Fiber Optic Microswitch is the world’s first fiber optic microswitch. It provides a signaling solution that can be deployed in difficult and hazardous environments up to a distance of 4,000 meters. The switch sensor employs a photo interrupt scheme operating over a duplex 62.5/125μm optical link that allows for reliable signal detection. The microswitch is entirely non-electrical and passive. There are two models of microswitch available in the MR386 line, the industrial and non-metallic MR Safe. It is interchangeable with the V15 series of electrical microswitches. Applications include use as a discrete position sensor, high voltage swtichgear, and actuator or valve positions. Micronor micronor.com
